Storyline

Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another - for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves... or it might destroy her. Written by anonymous

What a waste of time!
12 May 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with a free theatre ticket I got from work, and still felt screwed over for wasting my time. Can't believe the high IMDb status. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. It's a film I can imagine being aired on a kids TV channel some Sunday afternoon. I struggle to write the minimum 10 lines I'm supposed to write to post this review, as there's nothing more really I can say about it. I tried thinking of possible metaphors the film aimed to suggest, some unconventional take on things, some acting spark. Maybe it's just me, but unfortunately I can't find a single positive thing to say. Except perhaps that its produced quite OK, but which movie isn't today. So for lack of anything better to say, I'm just gonna finish those ten lines by repeating my second sentence: Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing.
